   General Notes:

Edward gained the name of "Exile" from his life spent mostly far from the England of his forefathers. When only a few months old, he was supposedly sent by Canute the Great to his half-brother Olof of Sweden to be murdered. Instead, he was secretly sent to Kiev and then made his way to Hungary. On hearing the news of his being alive, Edward the Confessor recalled him to England and made him his heir. However, Edward the Exile died shortly after his return, causing a succession dispute that ultimately led to the Norman Conquest of England.

   Marriage Information:

Edward married Agathe KOMETOPOULAINA of Bulgaria, daughter of Gabriel-Radomir KUMET Tsar of the Bulgarians (1014-15) and ÁRPÁD Princess of Hungary, about 1035 in London, Middlesex, England.
